Florida Institute of Technology is pleased to offer the Corporate Deferment Program. Any student whose employer will directly reimburse them for tuition cost at the end of each semester are welcome to apply. Participation in the program allows the student to defer payment of the current semester's tuition balance for a period not to exceed 30 days from the date semester grades are posted.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM IF YOUR EMPLOYER WILL PAY FLORIDA TECH DIRECTLY UPON RECEIVING A BILLING INVOICE FROM ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT. Please see Third Party Billing & Tuition Assistance for more information or contact our third-party billing coordinator, Kathy Mango (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Two documents are required to be submitted each academic year in order to participate in the Corporate Deferment Program:
Submit your completed document packet by email, fax, or mail. Both documents must be submitted together as one packet in order for your corporate deferment to be considered complete; submitting separately will result in a delay of processing or not being processed at all. Deferment contracts received without an employment benefit verification document WILL NOT be accepted. Your employer verification will need to be in writing, naming you, your eligibility, and the dates for which you are applying for the deferment. A copy of the company policy will not suffice as proof that a student will receive reimbursement. You will only need to submit one contract to be covered for the entire academic year (Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters). Please note your signature is required for your contract to be valid.
Examples of acceptable tuition reimbursement verification documents include:
NOTE: Documents from employers with billing infomation, especially requesting an invoice for your cost, should review Third Party Billing & Tuition Assistance as the corporate deferment program may not be the correct program for your tuition assistance benefit.
In an effort to go paperless, our office is encouraging all of our corporate deferment students to scan and email the required documentation. By doing this we can expedite the time of processing as well.
Verify the acceptance of your deferment contract through Access Florida Tech, then PAWS. If your deferment contract has been processed, your account will reflect a hold with text "CDP" with the academic year of your participation. If the academic year is not current, you will need to submit a new deferment contract & employment/tuition benefit verification document. Please allow three (3) business days for your deferment contract to be processed.
Follow these steps to verify the status of your deferment contract:

Eligible students are required to sign and submit the corporate deferment contract each academic year, prior to the semester's tuition & fee due date.
While participating in the Corporate Deferment Program the student will be eligible to register for the next semester. However; registration, as well as program participation, may be reviewed for cancellation if the deferred balance for any previous semester is not paid in full by the corresponding due date. The student is responsible for making payment to Florida Tech in accordance with the program due dates regardless of whether or not reimbursement is received from their employer.
In the event of a withdrawal, full payment of the deferred tuition will be due immediately based on the university's withdrawal/refund policy as published in that semester's Schedule of Classes.
Florida Tech reserves the right to deny any student the privilege of participating in the Corporate Deferment Program at any time.
